a Corresponding author:
Experimental approaches to study fretting are heavily dependent on the performances of the test devices, especially considering the extensive use of quantitative parameters extracted from fretting loops. The dynamic response of a newly designed high temperature test bench is analysed to define the practical test range and identify dynamic disturbance sources. Displacement and load metrology are studied, leading to a direct comparison of two tangential load measurement methods. Accounting for the inertia loads and the elastic properties of the guiding system allows to increase the frequency operating range of the test bench.
Key words: Test rig analysis / fretting loops / metrology / high temperature
